Matthew Stafford Week 11 Fantasy Update: Huge Comeback Leads To Huge Fantasy Day For Stafford

After freaking out fantasy owners with two interceptions on the team's first two possessions on Sunday, Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford made up for it in a big way, surely leading the bulk of his owners to a win this week.

The Lions fell behind the Carolina Panthers 24-7 in the first half which put the ball, along with any hopes for a comeback, in Stafford's hands and the young quarterback made the most of the opportunity. Stafford completed 22 of 38 passes for 335 yards and five touchdowns to guide the Lions to a comeback win over the Panthers.

The five touchdowns were the most Stafford has thrown in one game this season, topping his four-TD effort in week two against Kansas City, and tied his career-high. Stafford also threw five touchdowns in a win over Cleveland during his 2009 rookie season.

Stafford easily eclipsed his Numberfire.com projection of 20.81/32.40 throwing for 244.11 yards, 1.84 TDs, 0.92 interceptions. While some of the owners of Lions receivers may be bummed Stafford spread the ball around so evenly on Sunday, no one who played Stafford this week will complain about the top tier fantasy QB numbers he put up against the Panthers.
